I watched the pilot and it doesnt look like anything I could watch each week, just not my taste. I was hoping for a good old fashioned spook show but I got soft porn and things that didnt really make sense.

It sounds a little disappointing then. I'll give it a go when it airs here. If I don't like the pilot I won't carry on watching it.

That pretty much summarizes my thoughts on the show. I only watched 20-30 minutes of the show, but from what I gathered... they moved because the wife wanted to get the husband away from this chick he was cheating on. He cheated because his wife had a miscarriage and she wasn't putting out.... so he sought lovin' from someone else. Wife found out and they moved cross-country to "get away".

There's also some sub-plot about the dad being a psychiatrist who is seeing some suicidal boy who has the hots for his doctor's daughter, who has started cutting. What disturbed me about this was how they portrayed the cutter. They really know how to tackle the sensitive issues...

As for the house, everyone keeps telling them it's haunted.... and they hired one of the ghosts as a maid. The husband sees her as this hot french-maid type chick and the wife & kids see her as an old lady with cataracts in one eye. The result was a poor excuse for smut. (I s'pose that's why it's on so late.)

Really wasn't that creepy. I was more disappointed by the story line... it was past my self-imposed bedtime and NOT worth staying up to watch.

I've only watched the pilot, but I've got the second (and will probably have the third) episodes dvr'd. I didn't mind it at all. I've seen the comments comparing it to soft-core porn--I didn't really get that vibe but I could be de-sensitized from all the shows I watch on HBO. I'll continue to watch because I feel like it's going to slowly build up to something scary. I like the pace so far...

I like this show quite a lot. The first episode was intriguing, the second was a bit weaker, but the third one was really good. I think it's a way better show than The Walking Dead (with the exception of last week's episode of Walking Dead, which was what I've been wishing the show could be since it began).

I watch first episode but decided to let this go after the viewing of pilot. I stick to horror movies and Walking Dead tv show.

I love this show but I don't see how its on basic cable. I like how you have to put pieces together to follow it.

I finally caught up on this show yesterday while I was home sick from work. I really like it. That family is so screwed :lol:

So, to those who watch, does anyone else get the impression that Tate is a ghost? There's definitely something else going on with him other than just being a disturbed teen...
